So as you know, you ain't getting into heaven unless you have at least three wives. Warren Jeffs took that to heart marrying between 50 to 80 women, many of these "women" being actually 12-year-old girls. He was the Prophet, the voice of God so parents willingly gave their children to this sociopathic sexual deviant. In ep. 72 of Strange Country, Beth and Kelly get back into the wine and cringe while they recount his awful deeds. Remember: "One hole is not enough!"
Theme music: Resting Place by A Cast of Thousands.
